Don?t give up hope for someone you love
A heartwarming story dealing with 14 year old Travis and his response to his family's failure to cope with his mothers accident, that has left his mother with a traumatic brain injury, unable to speak, unrecogniseable as their mother.
Kicked out of his home by his father, and armed with little else but his mothers old guitar, he makes a journey for the first time living away from his family. Can he learn to survive on his own? More importantly, can he find the strength to believe that his mother will get well again, when it seems the rest of his family have given up on her?
He discovers that his love for guitar music, instilled in him by his mother, might be the key to his own survival and the answer to how he can help his mother to recover.
This book shows how important it is to beat the despair that can sometimes be sprung upon us by unforseen circumstances. We can be encouraged that as one door closes we might be able to influence another one to open.
